"Great instrument for DNA shearing. Fast and reliable. Service contract is a bit pricey."

Review date: 05 Feb 2019 | S220 Focused-ultrasonicators

The S220 Focused-ultrasonicator is a versatile, high power system engineered for pre-analytical sample processing with Covaris’ patented Adaptive Focused Acoustics® (AFA®). Utilizing a spherical acoustic transducer, specifically designed AFA Tubes, and advanced electronics, AFA delivers controlled energy precisely and accurately to sample volumes from 15 μl to 18 ml.

The versatility of the S220 Focused-ultrasonicator makes it possible to bring the advantages of AFA to numerous biological and chemical applications including, DNA, RNA, and chromatin shearing, tissue homogenization, cell lysis, compound dissolution, and particle micronization.

The S220 Focused-ultrasonicator is computer controlled by SonoLab™ Software, incorporating preset protocols for standard methods, such as DNA shearing to specific fragment lengths, and easy-to-use-tools for user-defined protocols. The S220 is also compatible with ActiveX control if required for more specialized customer-defined, laboratory automation applications.

Focused-ultrasonicators with AFA Technology operate at high frequencies (500KHz) and, therefore, unlike traditional low frequency laboratory sonicators. AFA is inaudible and does not require sound-proof boxes, hearing protectors, or other unusual precautions for their operation.

The S220 Focused-ultrasonicator  is available in higher power (S220X) and robotic capable (S220R) configurations.
